United Way supports services that help people every day

October 26, 2003

Dear Editor:

Heart of Kentucky United Way supports a network of services that help people day-in and day-out, all year long. These services address some very real, very urgent problems that our central Kentucky area faces - problems such as illiteracy, substance abuse, programs for disabled children, the abused and the elderly. However, United Way supports not only crisis programs, but also focuses on community building through children's programs like 4-H and Big Brothers/Big Sisters and enrichment programs for seniors.

United Way is about people - both the people who need help and the people who are dedicated to making all our lives a little better. By contributing to United Way, we become part of that continuum of caring.

From personal experience, I know that the more I invest and get involved with Heart of Kentucky United Way, the more committed I become. And without exception, I find that to be true for everyone else who becomes involved. To those of you who haven't experienced that reward, I issue this challenge: Today, become knowledgeable about Heart of Kentucky United Way. Find out for yourself, firsthand, what United Way is, how it meets the needs of thousands of people in central Kentucky, and how it affects you, your family, friends, co-workers and neighbors. The best part of this challenge is that if you invest today in what matters most, you will be changing lives and shaping our communities.


If you accept this challenge, I'm confident you will be convinced that together we are better.

I am proud of the tradition of community support Heart of Kentucky has established and through efforts of people like you, we will make that tradition continue. A gift to Heart of Kentucky United Way truly is an investment in your community - please give to the annual campaign by sending your pledge or check to Heart of Kentucky United Way, 118 N. Third St., PO Box 748, Danville, KY 40423-0748, and become a part of what matters. Our campaign ends Nov. 21, so please mail your gift today! Thank you.
